Second victim of helicopter crash at A&M dies

A Black Hawk helicopter crash on the campus of Texas A&M has claimed a second life.
A hospital spokeswoman says Sgt. Charles C. Mitts, 42, of Spring, Texas, died Wednesday night at Memorial Hermann Hospital.
Mitts was one of five soldiers aboard the UH-60 when it crashed Monday afternoon shortly after takeoff during a training exercise. The crash also killed 2nd Lt. Zachary Cook, 22, a recent Texas A&M graduate. The three others aboard were injured.
Mitts served with the Texas Army National Guard. He was deployed to Iraq from 2006 to 2007.
